Location: Legoland Billund, Denmark
Time Frame: May, 3 nights and 3 days
Type. We stayed at FDM Camping - Billund, which is a camping village about 500 meters from Legoland. We had a two bedroom cabin with a parking space.
Cost. We had an entire package which not only included our accommodation, but also 2 day passes to the park. The total cost was 528 Euros.
Amenities. Our cabin had two bedrooms (one with double bed, one with bunk beds), kitchenette, sitting area and bathroom (shower only). We also had a television (and like most Scandinavian countries there was plenty of English language shows). There were several play areas in the camping park, and there was a water recreation area right across the street. The site also had a small grocery store.
Other. You can't get any closer to Legoland than this! We were within walking distance of the park.
Kid Friendly Rating: I would give this hotel four stars (****) for kid friendliness.
Driving. We drove from our home in Germany, and it took us around 12 hours. Driving in the area was pretty easy, and the hotel did offer parking with our accommodation. Since we were so close to the park, we just left our car and walked.
Public Transportation. There were some buses to the park from the town, and Legoland has it's own adjacent airport (Billund airport).
Walking. Leooland is fairly isolated, though we were able to walk from our accomodations.
Since we had a kitchenette, both breakfast and dinner were eaten at "home". We brought some food with us, but purchased more essentials at the small shop in the camping village.
Fast Food. Legoland had plenty of places to eat, ranging from the burger joints, to sit down places.
Sit Down. There were a few sit down places in the park.
Legoland...need I say more?
Times: See the parks website for more information as the park is open seasonally.

Comments: We found this the most fun of the European Legolands. The smaller children had access to more of the rides, and they were much more family friendly. They have a great medical staff (our smallest tripped and split her lip open) who even gave our daughter some free duplos for being a trooper. They also have plenty of baby help, with free diapers, changing facilities, food and bottle warmers, etc.
Availability:Public restrooms can be found readily throughout the park. They have family restrooms as well, just in case Mom or Dad has to help a little one.
Public/Private: All of the restrooms in the park are open to the public.
Cost: Restrooms in the park are free.
Laundry: The camping village did have a laundry room.
Groceries: There was a small shop at the camping village, as well as larger ones in Billund proper.
This was a really fun trip. We arrived late in the afternoon, but were please to discover that we could get into the park for free for the last hour (as the rides were all closed). This allowed us to see Miniland and do some pre-shopping. Our kids had a great time on the rides, and surprisingly the lines were very short, so they could on the rides repeatedly. I was slightly bummed to miss the roller coasters, as I was pregnant. In two days, we were able to hit every ride that was open. The lunches were a bit pricey (hey welcome to Denmark) but balanced out with the fact that we had "home" meals and brought our own snacks.
Trip Highlights- umm, Legoland?
If you love Legos, Legoland Billund is definitely a 5 star must see location.
